Young musicians to have their own night at Weirs Beach club


LACONIA -- Paradise Beach Club in Weirs Beach this summer will be offering teenagers an opportunity to show their stuff, musically speaking that is.

On Wednesdays between 7 and 10 p.m., beginning July 1, the club will host an event they are calling Rookie Rockers. This will be an opportunity for youngsters, age 18 and under, to take the stage and perform, whether on guitar, drums, sax, bass, keyboard, or even to sing.

Youngsters under the age 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 21, and the owners stress that the club cannot take any responsibility in watching your children. We will have security and members of the Laconia Police Department on the premises.

The club, located at 322 Lakeside Ave., asks that kids not arrive prior to the 7 p.m. event start time, and that all kids being dropped off, be picked up promptly at 10 p.m.

A variety of appetizers and sandwiches will be available for the entire evening. Bar service will not be open for alcohol consumption at any time during the teen event.

The goal of Rookie Rockers is to allow an opportunity for our young area musicians to meet one another and have the opportunity to perform together. It is hoped that through this experience, that working bands may form. At some point during the season, it is ultimately planned that a "Battle of the Bands" will take place. Sponsorship will be sought out, making it possible to provide monetary prizes to the winning bands, along with other prizes.

Please call 366-COOL(2665) if you request any additional information regarding this event.
